iTunes is the biggest hindrance in the Apple’s mobile ecosystem which circumscribes the smooth and easy user experience. Let me confess something here today: I switched to iPhone from Android with high hopes and plans to use the most graceful and beautiful device, but soon left the iPhone for Android, and the only reason I have is the painful times when I had to go through a tedious process of going through iTunes to transfer my music, data, songs, files and books. Android, on the other hands, gives you the ability to transfer just about anything with a simple copy and paste mechanism. But here’s the thing: a new app “WALTR” is in the town which lets you transfer music, songs and data from your Mac and Windows computer to iPhone or vice versa without iTunes. Yes! And the best part is that there is no jailbreak required. This software is so powerful that it makes data transfer from your Mac and Windows PC to iPhone and iPad just like an open source way.
Transfer Music, Videos from Computer to iPhone without iTunes
Here’s how to transfer music, videos and files from your computer to iPhone with WALTR.
Download and install WALTR (the link is given at the end of this article). After installation, launch it and it will ask you to connect your iPhone with the computer.
Connect your iPhone with your Windows computer or Mac with the data cable.
As expected, iTunes will pop-up, but you can give it a shut-up call this time or ignore it as we have WALTR with us.
WALTR is a paid software ($30, I know it looks expensive, but trust me, it is worth it), but it is free for first 14 days of trial. You will have to enter an activation code. For that, just give your email id when it asks you, and you will get a code within seconds. Just enter that code by clicking the “Register” option by going to the menu from the top left corner (by clicking the hamburger icon).
The interface is WALTR couldn’t be simpler. You have a single central + button where you could drag and drop, and select and browser all the files, music files, videos you want to transfer to iPhone from your computer. That’s it. The transfer will be made in seconds or minutes-depending upon the size of data.
WALTR needs no syncs, no waiting, no vicious circles and riddles.
The best part of this app is that you can transfer music, videos and files from your computer to iPhone without waiting for synching for all the other files that are already in your phone. It is quick, easy to use and secure.
